31 Days to Seeing Through God's Eyes-Day 6: YOU ARE A FARMER
To some the following statement may be confusing although others will know EXACTLY what I am referring to.
Ever heard the saying "You will reap what you sow"? Well, that is what a farmer does and you my friend, believer or not, do the same thing.
For the confused ones I hope to clear up the confusion!
Our life is a constant reminder of what we have sown. Why? Because you are sowing today what you will reap tomorrow! You are reaping today what was sown yesterday, last week, last year! WOW...
Just like a farmer who plants a seed in the ground then when the seed has had time to grow he goes out and harvest it. If he sows soy beans whether he wants it or not, he will reap (harvest) soy beans. It's a no brainer really.
Look at your bible and see all the verses regarding reaping and sewing.
Galatians 6:7-8 (msg)
Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.
Job 4:7 (msg)
It’s my observation that those who plow evil and sow trouble reap evil and trouble.
Look at them! Planting wind-seeds, they’ll harvest tornadoes.
It's clear to me that I will reap what I sow!
My question to you is "What are you sewing?"
Are you sowing things of the flesh or things of the spirit?
It's easy to figure it out. Just take a look at what you are reaping. Are you reaping happiness, joy, peace, prosperity, a loving heart, forgiveness? If so, you are probably sowing in things of the spirit. However, if you are only reaping sadness, depression, financial issues, depression then there is a good chance that you are sewing to things of flesh.
Pray to God that you can figure out the difference! If you have sown to the flesh, PRAY FOR CROP FAILURE. Refuse to water those seeds. Do NOT continue to fertilize the soil with your thoughts or words. Ask God to give you wisdom regarding the situations and he will give it to you.
Remember as you go through your life YOU determine the harvest. YOU plant the seeds. YOU water the seeds. YOU fertilize the ground.
The decision is yours!
YOU ARE THE FARMER!
